Aromatherapy has been used for centuries to treat a wide variety of ailments. Peppermint is often called the world’s oldest medicine. Unlike many other herbs and essential oils, the health benefits of peppermint oils have been studied and proven by the scientific community. Peppermint is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion. Jean Valnet, M.D., studied peppermint’s effect on the liver and respiratory systems. Other scientists have also researched peppermint’s role in affecting impaired taste and smell when inhaled. Dr. William N. Dember of the University of Cincinnati studied peppermint’s ability to improve concentration and mental accuracy. Alan Hirsch, M.D., studied peppermint’s ability to directly affect the brain’s satiety center (the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus) which triggers a sensation of fullness after meals.
The unique blend of pure peppermint oils used to make the Dr. Zaxx essential oil is specially formulated to help provide relief from a wide range of headaches including migraines.
